Super Sniffers: Dog Detectives on the Job,

Bloomsbury, 2014

These days dogs do a number of special jobs for people using their incredible sense of smell. They are masters at detecting not only drugs and weaponry but also allergens, poop of endangered species, even blood levels of hormones through a person’s body odor. They can detect the presence of human beings alive, recently dead, or long dead. In this book I cover a great variety of dog jobs that take advantage of their fabulous sense of smell.
